We had quite the weekend but first, I’ll share what you are likely here to see – this week’s favorite find. Wow, this china cabinet was a lot easier to get home than the Bassett cabinet a few weeks ago.
Did I fool you? It actually is a sweet jewelry box and I plan on painting it white. Look at the tiny door pulls!
I mentioned we had a big weekend. Sophie sang as part of the Strathmore Children’s Chorus as the opening act for – gasp – Julie Andrews! It was quite the event and I cannot express my pride in our little songbird. They received a standing ovation and tears came into this mother’s eyes!
I just have to share a few pics from our day out yesterday. My mother and I took the kids to Burnside Farms in Haymarket, VA. We spent the afternoon picking tulips (bulbs attached) for replanting at home. It was a glorious day and even Matthew ended up having a nice time – he wasn’t thrilled when told of his planned day but went along and was a trooper!
It was heavenly. I promise to get to work this week! I plan on starting on the real Bassett China Cabinet – can’t wait!
Ihad a jewelry box like that ages ago.Your kids are cute,looked like the girls were having a good time and those flowers were lovely.
Thank you, Marlene!
Ha! You had me fooled! But don’t let that little jewelry box fool you…All of those little details…it will keep you busy! 🙂
You know it! I think it may be more of a challenge than it looks!

Ha ha Suzanne, I saw the chair in the background and figured it was a jewelry box. How fun to spend the day with your kids tiptoeing through the tulips! Looking forward to seeing Big Bassett China Cabinet.
Fooled me too. But I love it. Sometimes I love the old hardware on a piece I find more than the furniture. Congrats to Sophie! Most of us just dream of seeing Julie Andrews. But getting to perform for her, she’s accomplished a lot in her young life already.
Lord those colors! Beautiful photos. Have a great week!
Thank you Paige! The colors were breathtaking! I hope you have a great week, too!
Thank you, Mimi! It was quite a thrilling night for Sophie! Very proud of her 🙂
